Di. Bishwa Nath Piasad, Chairman, Standing Corn- ton fot Scientific & Technical Terminology., Ministry Education., Gout of India, New Delhi "The Linguistic Suivey of India is a monumental woik of everlasting impoi tance It is the fust authen- tic recoid of most of the spoken languages of our countiy. As it had gone out of print, it had become difficult to get the complete set of its volumes in our libraries The idea to bring out reprints of all the volumes of Linguistic Survey of India is, therefore, highly welcome. M/S. Motilal Banarsidass have done a splendid job by undertaking this task and executing it in such an excellently nice way It \\ill be hailed by the Scholais of Linguistics and tluouahout the woild".
